She always called him Mr. President not Jack. He refused to kiss her on the lips when they made love. But Mimi Alford, a White House intern from New Jersey, was smitten nonetheless.
She was in the midst of an 18-month affair with the most powerful man in the world, sharing not only John F. Kennedys bed but also some of his darkest and most intimate moments.
In her explosive new tell-all, Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath, Alford, now a 69-year-old grandmother and retired New York City church administrator, sets the record straight in searingly candid detail. The book, out Wednesday was bought by The Post at a Manhattan bookstore.
In the summer of 1962, Alford was a slender, golden-haired 19-year-old debutante whose finishing-school polish and blueblood connections had landed her a job in the White House press office

As putrid as this is, I think it’s always better to have a womanizer as POTUS than a HOMOPOTUS.
The news media were completely silent on the subject, but JFK was a womanizer extraordinaire. I have heard from people with family in the administration that he generally had at least two or three women a day. Obviously it must have kept him pretty busy.
Read the report, which seemed to be more about KFK. Just curious how a little unmasjed Newt bash came as a result.

Opps, somehow hit the post key before ready, tried in vain to stop it from going.....
The old media...acessories to the crimes, enablers and cowards.
So he pimped her out? What a gentleman.
Yeah, gives me an understanding of why JFK always complained of back trouble...

I wonder why this woman just didn’t keep her mouth shut...does she really need the money?
Also it was interesting that he said - supposedly - that he’d rather his children were red than dead because just recently we heard that Jackie made the really strange comment that she wanted to die with JFK (by staying in the WH with her husband rather than going to a safe place in the event of a nuclear attack) and so did the children. Hard to imagine she actually said that!
This woman describes this as an affair?
Not so much...it was more a situation when JFK decided on the girl du jour and summoned her.
What I don’t understand is why a 69 year old grandmother would divulge this. Don’t tell me money...I can’t wrap my brain around that.
At some point in life, most people realize that their youthful indiscretions should be left in the past.Even though JFK took advantage of her youth, at some point she had to have thought that things weren’t right. I would hate to be her kids or grandkids.
The whore has no shame...she even wrote a book. Isn’t that nice?
Wasn’t a Newt bash(read my tagline). Added that comment to show amazement that some are concerned with Newt’s (alleged/factual)infidelities when JFK is enshrined in those same minds as some sort of Saint—of course, he was a ‘rat and crossed over the divide nearly 50 years ago. Ever heard the term, “double standard”? IOW, your comment is way off base.
Well, isn’t this all just so precious?
Basically he used her as slut it’s really a disturbing story all around except treated w respect because it’s JFK. And keep in mind she was one of a hundred. At least a hundred.
“...red than dead...”
Yes, I noted that, too. And, this from the man who “faced the Soviet menace/Kruschev down.” Doesn’t quite fit the stories we are fed about the illustrious JFK.
Does the press corps (corpse?) have any members who are not sluts or whores?
Alex...I'll take "Press-ti-tutes and eneMedia" for 500!
LBJ and Hoover were able to lead the coup that killed JFK because most in powerful positions were aware that JFK was trash.
LBJ was going to jail for murder, his ticket out was Elm Street as he squashed that investigation per Barr McClellan, one of LBJ's lawyers.
Hoover of course had files on everybody. Hoover in many respects was the most powerful man on Earth and he was not going to give up his power if JFK was re-elected. Without Hoover, of course, the coup would have been easily exposed.
